Video editing on Linux [Apr. 3rd, 2014|12:40 pm]

I have a concert video that I'd like to do a little editing on and post to YouTube. I had thought I remembered that even comparatively recently, the state of video editing on Linux was awful, but the article at http://www.techdrivein.com/2013/09/top-5-video-editors-for-ubuntu-linux.html showed me that apparently I was wrong. I'm looking for something simple, comparable to iMovie, not Final Cut. I'm going to try Flowblade becase the comments seem to indicate that it's the least buggy, but does anyone have any other advice?

The videos I'm currently playing with are not something I'd put the 'art' frame around, but I've found 'avidemux' suitable for simple cut/splice, with only a modest learning curve. Sounds like you're aiming further up the food chain, though

I actually wound up going with OpenShot, which seems to work quite well (and there's a Mac version as well, should I need it).
